Welcome Letter from NEW IAND President Erin Thole Summers

Welcome Letter from President Erin Thole Summers

It is an honor to serve as your Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics President for the 2018-2019 fiscal year.  As a member based organization my top priority is to assure that our member needs are being met. The Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics mission is to “Empower members to be Iowa’s food and nutrition leaders.”  By way of our board, council, and district leaders, we are able to carry out such a mission.  However, it is not without member involvement that allows the Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to promote the Registered Dietitian profession.

I encourage each of our almost 1000 Iowa Registered Dietitian members to get involved.  Become involved with your local Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics district, connect with your local legislators, attend our annual meeting, or visit our website and like our Facebook page. No matter how you get involved it is important to share your story and your voice to allow fellow Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetic RD’s to learn and growth with an every evolving profession.

This year, be on the lookout for:

  • Updates to our webpage, eatrightiowa.org
  • An exciting and informative annual meeting
  • Updates and alerts to nutrition related legislation
  • Member scholarships
  • So much more!


I look forward to a year of growing and promoting the RD profession! 

Erin Thole Summers, MS, MBA, RDN, CSSD, LDN
